Fastest known times over routes on Mount Taranaki and within Egmont National Park, New Zealand.
NOTICE: Sadly Alistair passed away last year, and we have yet to find someone to take over the site. Our apologies to anyone who has a record that needs to be published or updated. Please continue to send these through to the email provided, and once the maintenance of the site has been sorted, we will arrange for the updates.
Most of us are happy to enjoy the Egmont National Park mountain and bush tracks at our own pace, and trampers, climbers and trail-runners have set many speed records on Mount Taranaki, Pouakai and Kaitaki.
This website salutes record holders past and present and acts as a reference, whether you want to compare a personal benchmark or set a new speed record.
The spirit of good will
Good will and honesty play an important part in maintaining the credibility of Mount Taranaki speed records though we do our best to verify times and routes before publishing. This is an ongoing project and we’re keen to add to our list of record holders and routes so contact us if you can help or have another route within Egmont National Park to throw into the mix.
Be safe and enjoy the park whether at a leisurely pace or in pursuit of your speed goals.
